Description of Resource

This book tells the story of a young girl whose mother is in detention because she does not have U.S. citizenship papers. This story reflects the reality of tens of thousands of children who do not know if and when they will see their parents again -- and many more if you extend that experience to the children of all incarcerated parents.
